This is a view of Prague, looking up the Vltava River towards Charles Bridge at centre and the Little Quarter at right. A few riverboats ply the waters in the foreground. The Church of St Nicholas’ Church is seen at far right, with the Church of Our Lady Victorious a little further towards Charles Bridge. Petrín Hill, fortified by the Hunger Wall, can be seen in the background.
Turner produced several views of Prague on the 1835 tour.
